What are Cryptocurrencies and How are they Taxed?
Cryptocurrencies have taken over the world of consumer and professional finance over the last several years, but how do they actually work? It's probably best to think of cryptocurrencies as digital assets that are secured by cryptography. These transactions are verified through a decentralized network which ensures accurate counting and tracking of the amounts spent. While various cryptocurrencies have unique features, they all use centralized ledgers to track their transactions and maintain security; this is referred to as a blockchain.
How CPAs and Tax Professionals can Prepare for the Crypto Tax Season
It's been over a decade now since Bitcoin has been released. The cryptocurrency landscape today looks a little different than it did back then, significantly due to increased consumer adoption of crypto and other non-traditional finance systems. The cryptocurrency space has evolved to a point where there's no longer much time for tax professionals to prepare for crypto tax reporting in their workflows.
Even though digital assets are still in their infancy in the grand scheme of the financial sector, their adoption rates are accelerating, with institutional and personal adoption growing by the day. Even if you as a tax professional haven't adopted cryptocurrency for your personal or business finance, you're going to have to start understanding how to manage the taxation and accounting aspects of this new digital asset class.
